Emerging strategies in the management of essential tremor

30 Nov 2016

Currently available therapies for essential tremor (ET) provide sufficient control only for less than a half of patients and many unmet needs exist. Here the authors review the most promising new approaches to treating ET, including allosteric modulation of GABA receptors and modifications of the LINGO-1 pathway.

A step toward essential tremor gene discovery: identification of extreme phenotype and screening of HTRA2 and ANO3

23 Nov 2016

This study aimed at exploring ET patients to identify distinct subgroups and facilitate the identification of ET genes. The data support that distinct ET phenotypic subgroups may be encountered and HTRA2 and ANO3 mutations are not common causes of ET.

Approach to a tremor patient

21 Nov 2016

Tremors are commonly encountered in clinical practice and are the most common movement disorders seen. They have varying etiology; hence, classifying them appropriately helps in identifying the underlying cause. Essential tremor (ET) and enhanced physiological tremor are the most common causes of action tremor. Isolated head tremor is more likely to be dystonic rather than ET. Isolated voice tremor could be considered to be a spectrum of ET. Psychogenic tremor is not a diagnosis of exclusion; rather, demonstration of various clinical signs is needed to establish the diagnosis. Severity of tremor and response to treatment can be assessed using clinical rating scales as well as using electrophysiological measurements. This article provides a broad overview of tremor patient treatment.

Continuous monitoring of essential tremor using a portable system based on smartwatch

19 Nov 2016

Essential tremor (ET) shows amplitude fluctuations throughout the day, presenting challenges in both clinical and treatment monitoring. Motor sensors have shown favorable performances in quantifying tremor objectively. This study demonstrates the feasibility of continuous monitoring of ET for long period during daily activities by a portable nonrestrictive system.
